What does it take to cultivate a thriving business venture? Nine times out of ten, the answer is pretty simple: deliver value. But, the challenge isn’t in the answer — it’s in the method. To provide value for your clientele, you can go down any number of paths, from offering gifts to delivering extra services. However, many entrepreneurs have started raising the stakes — and their results — with one value-generating tool: podcasting.

The thing is, creating a podcast for your business isn’t so simple. It takes more than buying all the right equipment and setting up a fancy website to start seeing the ROI pouring in. But, you also don’t need all the flashy extras to generate quality leads and make your business thrive! So, we sat down with entrepreneurs and leaders across industries to talk about their business podcasts, what they learned during the process, and how they’ve been able to leverage this awesome relationship-building tool. Let’s get started!

Former Clinton White House Writer John Corcoran shows you how to build relationships intelligently to get more clients, grow your income and advance your career.
